Slippery slope. Where is your proof that most MLB players have cheated?

I'll grant that "absence of proof is not proof of absence," but it's wrong to make unsubstantiated claims like this. I don't remember anyone accusing players like Barry Larkin (elected last year), Dave Winfield, or Gary Carter of cheating. Did Carlton Fisk ever cheat?
